Jackie Evancho - O Holy Night

O Holy Night

Jackie Evancho has an amazing voice for her age. This EP has Christmas songs, and is perfect to play for the holidays. "O Holy Night" is my favorite of the four here. Others here are "Silent Night", "Panis Angelicus", and "Pie Jesu". It also comes with a DVD, and has her performances from when she was on America's Got Talent. I also like her 2011 Heavenly Christmas album.
